The Home Builders Association of F-M recommends that you use local, licensed contractors.
The Association offers resources to help members of the public choose a qualified contractor. In general, local contractors have a history working in the area, have built a list of references and will be around to service warranties or problems that may arise with projects.
"With our extraordinary weather, it is more important than ever to make sure you are using a local, licensed contractor," says Bryce Johnson, HBA of F-M executive vice president. Out-of-town contractors come with every major storm or construction opportunity. While some of those companies are legitimate, sometimes they are not licensed and are difficult to track down if any future issues arise. Many times these outside contractors are just trying to make a quick buck and move on to the next place. Click here to view a list of local licensed HBA of F-M contractor members.
